Trauma 101

June 1, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Facilitator: Jessica Shepard, ESU 9 Behavior Specialist
Trauma-informed care is an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives. One of the key components of building organizational capacity for trauma-informed care is professional education and development. Staff need education about how trauma affects consumers seeking services, what trauma-informed care is, how to create safe environments for persons served, and ways to avoid re-traumatizing practices.
• Define trauma.
• Describe the effects of trauma on adults and children.
• Review intent and process for trauma screening.
• Identify strategies to create safety in trauma survivor’s lives.
• Discuss ways to assess for and implement trauma-informed services.
• Review the effects of trauma on the body and the importance of processing traumatic events through movement.
• Describe the impact of trauma work on service providers and organizations.
• Review ACE’s Study and the impact of trauma through the life span.
We are making a few changes to the format of this workshop. Trauma 101 will now be held via Zoom on June 1, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m. The cost of this workshop will change to $10.00 for ESU 9 Title IIA Consortium Members and $20.00 for non Title IIA Consortium Members.
The Supporting School’s Mental Health week will no longer be offered for 3 credit hours via Hastings College as a couple of the days are being cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for those of you wishing to take this week for credit. Some of the trainings just would not be effective offered over Zoom/online. Stay tuned for additional emails regarding other workshop cancellations.
